I Am FarmerWhen Tantoh Nforba was a child his fellow students mocked him for his interest in gardening T. This is a lovely biography of a man named Farmer Tantoh and his passion for helping both people and the environment It addresses the problem of access to clean water that plagues many parts of Africa while also telling the story of Tantoh and his passion for gardening that started when he was a small childTantoh always loved the soil and he started out by stealing some onions from his grandmother and trying to get them to grow In school the other kids teased him and looked down on him for his interest in horticulture calling him Farmer a nickname that stuck especially after he started to own it and use it with pride His brother thought he should get an office job but that's not what Tantoh wanted to do so he made the gusty decision to sabotage his own exam results freeing him to do what he really lovedThe illustrations are interesting collages done with a mixture of illustration and photography They're very colourful and help bring to life Tantoh's gardening workThis book is probably suitable for older children and it would make a great addition to a classroom library I would definitely recommend this one
